  • While there isn't much question regarding which team should prevail in this game -- Ohio is a big double-digit favorite over Eastern Michigan -- bettors only care about who will cover the spread and over/under.
  • And based on our college basketball picks and predictions, professional bettors are taking quite a liking to Thursday's Eastern Michigan vs. Ohio over/under.

Thursday afternoon’s Eastern Michigan vs. Ohio college basketball matchup has blowout written all over it.

First, the Bobcats rank 78th overall via KenPom.com, while the Eagles check in at just 263. This is clearly reflected in the latest Eastern Michigan vs. Ohio spread as well with the Bobcats giving 16 points in this game.

However, as bettors, we’re not necessarily interested in straight-up results.

The key question is whether Ohio wins in a route or if EMU can keep this game closer than expected and/or how many points are scored along the way.

As of Monday morning, there hasn’t been much market-moving action hitting the spread, but the over/under is another story altogether.
